[Guest] Sunshine Claire Balloon Card by Niki

on July 14, 2016
Hello everyone! We are excited to have Niki (@nikibee.handmade on IG) as a guest on the blog today! Take it away, Niki! IMG_20160706_070232_wm I used Claire and the track from Snail Mail stamp set. I paired that with the sentiment and created a large balloon from Balloon Messages stamp set. I created my background by heart embossing the stars from Ballon Messages and ink blended with Coffee Loves Milk ink, I did some ink splashing with first coffee loves milk ink, allowing it to dry, then a white acrylic paint. IMG_20160705_232110 Next I worked out my layout, stamped my images in Archival jet black ink and used watercolour (distress inks) to colour in. Adding a ton of sparkling Spectrum Noir shimmer pen in crystal clear to the balloon and Claire's bow and skirt. IMG_20160705_232210 After stamping my sentiment to look like a continuation of the track that Claire is standing on, I added in my favorite mix of sequins and beads.

[Guest] Watch It Wednesday Video - Berry Best Friend Card by Laura Sterckx

on October 28, 2015
Hello everybody! It's Laura Sterckx here from makingcardsisfun.com and I am thrilled to be guest designing for Waffle Flower this month. In my first video I am creating a quick and easy card using the Claire stamp set. waffle-flower-laura-sterckx-gd-close-up I stamped the strawberry stamp on a card panel. This way I created a fun background. I love how that turned out! I did some simple Copic coloring for all of the images. I tend to use two markers to add shading. This is a quick and easy way to color your images. To add glitter and sparkle on this card, I used a Clear Wink of Stella pen along with Glossy Accents and my beloved sequins. :) [Video] Berry Best Friend Card laura-sterckx-waffle-flower-gd-project-1 That's it for now! Have a great day! xo Laura --- Thank you for sharing with us today, Laura!
